About

90

'naturally cool and funky', this is Niepoort's nod to the past, when Vinho Verdes were bottled with some residual sugar and fine lees so they refermented, leaving the wine slightly spritzy and cloudy. With vibrant acidity and a prickle of CO2, this blend of Azal, Arinto, Avesso, Trajadura and Loureiro has fresh lemon and saline notes on the light, grippy palate, making it ideal to enjoy with food. Always sold in one-litre bottles.

Product Description:

The grapes are grown in two areas of Vinho Verde; Amarante and Lousada. The vines are on average 25-30 years old. 100-150 meters above sea level Granite All work is done by hand and practicing organic VINIFICATION - The wine is made in a the very typical and traditional way for the region. Wild yeasts are used and the wine is bottled before it is dry with some residual sugar and the fine lees. The wine then re-ferments in the bottle leaving a little bit of spritz and a cloudy appearance. No sulphur is used so malo also takes place in the bottle.
